As I have been getting back into affiliate marketing lately, there have been many times when I’ve tried to view the landing page of an offer that is targeted to a particular country, only to see the dreaded "Sorry, but this offer is not available in your country" message.

Viewing the exact landing page of an offer is extremely important, vital really, and so I went searching for a proxy service that would allow me to visit sites as if I was coming from a particular country.

After trying many free ones (let me just say that you get what you pay for) and looking through a few paid ones, I finally found a premium proxy service that did exactly what I wanted, and then some.18

GeoSurf is a premium proxy service that allows you to surf the web as if you were coming from another country (it currently offers 63 countries plus 25 major US cities). It does much more than that, but that is the gist of it.

There are many uses for such a service, but for most of you, its best suited for advertising research and analysis.

Screencast Review

Below is a 16-minute screencast review I made to show you how GeoSurf works and why it is useful for online marketers and advertisers.

When I made the screencast, I forgot to record the footage in a widescreen 16:9 ratio, so I highly recommend setting it to HD and then watching in full-screen mode (lower right hand button):

Mobile, Tablet, & Browser Emulator

In the screencast, I forgot to mention a few things I had planned on talking about.

The first is that in addition to surfing the web and seeing it as if you were in another country, GeoSurf also acts as a smartphone, tablet, and browser emulator.

As can be seen from the screenshot of the GeoSurf toolbar below, you can simply choose what other device you want to emulate viewing from:

17

You can emulate from over 20 of the most popular browsers and devices such as the iPad, iPhone, Blackberry devices, HTC, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.

This is a very useful feature, and really easy to use to – simply select the device from the dropdown menu and – voila – you’re viewing the webpage as if you were viewing it from that particular device.

Proxy on a Smartphone or Tablet

GeoSurf is also available to work on a smartphone or tablet, although I believe you need to set up a custom package with them if you want that capability.

If this is a feature you’d like on your account, you should contact them prior to ordering.

  1. Really a great software, thanks for sharing, i will buy soon.

  2. I agree, free proxies are shyte. I use it to also check all of my country redirects and country specific banner advertising… well worth it.

  3. Wesley says:

    This is really expensive, you’re better off using a VPN like witopia, expressvpn or hidemyass vpn. They’re like $10 a month.

  4. Really nice software! Quite useful to try! I had no idea that something like this existed.

  5. Eric says:

    I’ve seen the demo video for GeoSurf previously, and i must admit it looks pretty good! Thanks for this awesome review, I think i will probably invest in GeoSurf at some point soon.

  6. Seems like a decent system that I could work with!

    So… a goals post?

  9. What? says:

    I second Ryan. Why don’t you give us the kind of content we actually come here for?

  10. Hi Tyler,
    There are several good and less expensive programs on the market; of course, I agree that free and low-cost programs are the most shit. Do you want a good program, will it cost a bit more.

  11. Jasmine says:

    GeoSurf looks good and interesting. The cheapest $29/month pricing is not quite attractive, but thanks to your generous coupon code! Will check it out.

  12. used tires says:

    Nice review. I’ve been wanting a good proxy solution for awhile now as the websites I was using just weren’t cutting it. Going to give Geosurf a try and see how it works out.

  13. Thanks Tyler I have been fooling around with proxy’s as well. You couldn’t be more right about you get what you pay for. The free ones are horrible and they are kind of like shots in the dark. You can waste a lot of time looking for just the right service. Thanks for posting this I will see if they are better than the current company i am using. But from the video it looks like it is much better.

  14. Jasmine says:

    GeoSurf looks promising and has good features.

  15. Thanks for your review and your coupon code.
    The device emulator is a great resource becuase nowadays people use smarthpone and tablet to surf thee web,and it’s can cause various compatibility error with html code of a website

  16. I do not understand how you can come in and hijack another company article and offer era system instead, very rude.

  17. I guess I’m gonna give it a try!

  18. Thanks again Tyler. I signed up for this over the weekend and got a ton of stuff done.

  19. TV Receiver says:

    Interesting software. I will try this program for the 30 day trial before buying, to see if it fits my needs. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  20. Geosurf sure looks promising Tyler however, shouldn’t the first link ;”premium proxy”; be a one redirected from your domain considering that it will be the one users click the most. ;)

  21. Greg says:

    I highly doubt you can use Geosurf to scrape Fb ads.
    1. From my experience FB doesn’t serve them based on IP location. Profile (your account) location is the most important factor.
    2. FB quickly finds you suspicious logging from different countries all the time.
    The best way around would be to create different profiles for all the countries you want to scrape.

  22. Thanks for the heads up on this Tyler – a good proxy service is hard to find

  23. just looking for the new features….

  24. Rajnish says:

    I think this is a great tool for person who do SEO, because they can easily check ranking of a Website in Search from every country. Cool !!
